Greek men dating
We both knew I was leaving on an early flight, so the night couldn’t get too crazy. Next thing you know, I rummaging through my limiting suitcase that I had already gotten tired of opening, searching for something decent that wasn’t ripped, stained, or ugly to wear on this date.I grabbed my one always-reliable-black shirt, put on janky heels I saved for this situation exactly, and clicked out of the hostel with Damon by my side.What would come next was a blank page entitled “Greece,” where the contents were a mystery to me, a newly single gal.What I didn’t expect was that I’d be going on a date with someone Damon and I started calling “Greek God,” as a joke.Regardless of what brought me, I had concrete reasons to come back after my short week in Athens. The more I walked into trendy cafés and sipped perfectly made coffees that always had a little cookie on the side for me to enjoy, the more joy I felt.The vibe was a mix of Rio de Janeiro with Rome, how could I not be smitten?The server walking around with menus caught both of us off guard by his good looks, and his charm.
That’s what took me on this adventure to Greece, everything else was an added bonus.
Just as we were turning the corner, he yelled, “come back later for a drink!
” I pretended to sift through the menus fully aware that I didn’t give a damn; I’d much rather sip on a tall, dark, and handsome… We sat for a drink, and laughed for the entire duration of our afternoon aperitif which you can watch here.
And that’s exactly how we found ourselves flirting with a “Greek god.” We got yelled at for dancing at the Parthenon, and then decided we had had enough of slipping on ancient limestone and hearing the security guards viciously blow into his damn whistle. On the way from the Parthenon to where we ended up eating, we passed this café with a view to the ancient forum.
Sure, the view was great, but the view in front of me was even better: the definition of tall, dark, and handsome.
People were polite, knowledgable, and smiley when I gave Greek my absolute best effort and still failed.
